Descendents have responded after former Oath Keepers spokesman Jason Van Tatenhove wore a shirt with their logo while testifying on Tuesday (7/12) in front of the Select Committee investigating the January 6 attack on the United States Capitol, Pitchfork reports. “We completely disavow groups like the Oath Keepers and in no way condone their hateful ideology,” Descendents wrote on Twitter.

Van Tatenhove’s choice of shirt drew reactions from many on Twitter, including Chris Gethard and Lee Bains:
Am I hallucinating that this Oath Keeper testifying before congress is wearing a Descendents t-shirt? I just had hernia surgery so this may be the painkillers.

Milo taking these knuckleheads to college.
Descendents saying “not in our [Dog]house.”

Tell me this Trump supporting rioter who is about to testify to the Jan 6th committee is not wearing a @descendents shirt. There is nothing further from punk rock than a right wing nationalist supporting a billionaire elitist politician. Poser.

Did anyone have “witness in Descendents t-shirt” on their Jan 6 hearings bingo card?

Honestly never thought I'd live long enough to see someone testify before a Congressional committee wearing a Descendents t-shirt.

Former Oath Keepers member Jason Van Tatenhove is wearing a Descendents t-shirt to today’s January 6th Hearing. @descendents are notoriously anti-Trump.
